Abstract

A case of a cutaneous tumor caused by atypical mycobacterial infection (Mycobacterium kansasii) in a patient with hairy cell leukemia is reported. Surgical removal of the lesion and subsequent combination antituberculotic treatment led to a cure of this infection. Remission of the leukemia was achieved with interferon alfa.
